  1. i'm guessing it's a 6128. it's not a plus cpc though. they're using to motorola crtc chip to aid with the visuals. apparently it's going to be disk and cartridge, but the cartridge will be for all versions of the cpc.
  2. Commando is one of the most subversive films ever, outwardly it's a straightforward actioner, but it's really about a gay man trying to escape from an annoying ex who can't accept the fact he was spurned by his lover.
  3. got excited there for a moment. thought there was an update. these guys are behind the cpc version of Pinball Dreams which is technically the most impressive game on the 464.
  4. Was Duncan Mcdonald Mr Cursor? His stuff was great, I remember one of his stories about picking up a free monitor off a mate which was absolutely hilarious.
  5. I started reading PC Zone in about 1994. Stopped reading in 2000. I remember they organised a national Doom tournament which I participated in and got my arse kicked in. I was using cursors with ctrl for fire and you had guys using wsad and mouse who taped the shift key down. Also, who knew Charlie Brooker would become famous?
  6. Same here. I remember following the Virtua Racing port closely when it was announced and scrutinising the first screenshots in the Official Sega Magazine. I used to play the arcade machine in Birmingham City Centre and to me at the time it looked like a decent facsimile of the arcade. Graphics were vastly watered down but it captured the spirit if its big brother. Shame they didn't do more SVP games, would have liked to have seen Virtua Fighter.
  7. It was probably more Alan Sugar penny pinching. The CPC 464 was my first computer and I loved it, however with proper hardware scrolling and sprites it could have been amazing and wiped the floor with it's contemporaries Alas it wasn't meant to be. The 464 still got some amazing games though and some of them even scrolled! Also, the CPC did have hardware scrolling (kinda). Inside the CPC was a Motorola CRTC chip which could be used to aid scrolling (See the Pinball Dreams conversion). But, it was undocumented and home developers only started utilising it until after the party had
  8. Howards End should be alot higher and the list is missing The Bounty and Shadowlands
  9. i started watching these on Youtube a couple of months ago. i've pretty much seen most of them. Best one I've seen is The Flypaper. Which was episode 1 of season 3. Absolutely stunning piece of work, simple but very effective with possibly the bleakest ending I've seen in either film or television.
  10. Problem with the Psp version is it's 30fps with drops. Unless you overclock your Psp that is
  11. Fucking hell, 25 years old. Time flies doesn't it? Saw it when I was a student and now I'm a middle aged man.
  12. it's amazing what they can do nowadays, doesn't look very practical though.
  13. First time I saw the Nic Roeg version was on Moviedrome and I absolutely hated it. I was about 13 years old then. I remember Alex Cox saying the film needs multiple viewings. Let's face it, this new one is going to be pretty conventional and pale in comparison to Roeg's film.
  14. you'd be better off emulating cps2 rather than Saturn. Xmen COTA on Saturn had about 1/3 frames chopped out. Still, Capcom's 4mb games on Saturn were a thing of beauty. And were to all intents Arcade perfect. They still hold up today. Xmen vs SF looks better than the last Marvel vs Capcom game released and Street Fighter V looks ugly to me.
  15. just to bring up playground arguments they've done a cpc version too.
